Jonah Yakel, DC, - Proficiency Partners Diplomate


Dr. Jonah Yakel is a chiropractor and functional medicine practitioner who focuses on mold related illness, inflammation, CIRS, and autoimmune related conditions. Located in Overland Park, KS, Dr. Yakel currently provides online consultations for people located all over the country struggling with mold related illness. He has gone through extensive training with Dr. Shoemaker and is Proficiency Partner Certified.

In 2019, he joined George Washington Center for Integrative Medicine in Washington, DC, bringing his own personal experience navigating himself and his family, in addition to his clients, through the complexities of Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) and increased susceptibility to mold and biotoxins.

His interest in natural health and healing began early in life. When he was 19 years old, he lost his father to kidney cancer. Inspired to support people healing from the inside out, he received his doctorate degree in chiropractic in 2003 from Parker University in Dallas, TX. He has been in practice for over 12 years and in 2010 he founded Lifegate Health Center in Overland Park, KS. His own personal experience and health journey has lead him to focus on mold related illness working with Dr. Richie Shoemaker.

Dr. Yakel is a firm believer that the human body, as with all of life, is pure intelligence, always seeking to achieve greater states of health and wholeness. This principle informs him in his approach to healthcare. Specializing in a functional approach, he is always seeking to discover the underlying source of one’s health challenges instead of simply treating symptoms.

In his spare time Dr. Yakel serves on the board of MaxLove, a non-profit organization founded to help childhood thrive cancer and related life threatening illnesses. He lives in Overland Park, KS, with his wife Jeni, and two children Jacob and Amalie.
